Chinese liquor themed boutique hotel
For this renovation project, the client wanted the new design to focus on the topic of traditional Chinese liquor. In China, alcohol is made from cereal seeds, following a traditional liquor-making process that has been used over centuries. After a careful study of this process, we created a specific architectural scenography that gives people a singular sensory experience of the making of traditional Chinese liquor.
While re-organizing the function of the building and the refurbishment of interior and exterior spaces, we created a system that naturally links the different spaces through an artistic itinerary and guides the guests through the discovery of the different stages of liquor- making.
